The 7th edition of All-in-Print China will be held on 24-28 October 2018, at Hall N1-N5 and E4-E7, Shanghai New International Expo Center. There will be seven thematic pavilions/zones in line with the popular topics, including pavilions for digital prepress, comprehensive printing, postpress converting, packaging equipment, ink & innovative materials and label industry, and flexible packaging and corrugated carton zone. Additionally, there will be three special display areas, including intelligent factory, customized experience pavilion, and innovation factory.

At All-in-Print China, Apex International will launch its flexo concepts for label and flexible packaging to make the step from gravure or letterpress printing to flexo much easier and to print flexo consistently and in a standardized way.

Based in Hapert, Netherlands, Apex International is the world’s largest manufacturer of precision flexographic ink-to-plate transfer technology. In order to maintain its leading position, Apex International is investing heavily in a new state-of-the-art production facility in Nashik, India. This facility will produce ‘vertically’, meaning the total end-product from base to final engraved end-product will be produced under one roof. The new high-tech production facility is currently starting production and will scale up during 2019 in order to be able to deliver the end-product to the narrow and wide web industry of Middle East, India, South-East Asia and the Pacific markets.

Sam Seow, technical sales manager for Asia Pacific, confirmed that Apex International will present why flexo is the preferred printing method for packaging, at its All-in-Print China stand. Apex team will join Stand E6A229 together with its partner Shanghai Huiyue Printing & Packaging Technologies, said Seow.
